Beijing First Impressions and Video
Our trip to Beijing was short spanning only 3 nights in a hotel and 2 days with our tour guide. We didn’t remotely come close to seeing all. There are over 21 million people in almost 6,500 square miles! We saw the tourist highlights: Great Wall, Forbidden City and several palaces. These were great and definitely worth the visit. Although there is obviously more to see, we probably wouldn’t go back, at least not on purpose. We would like to see other Chinese areas and attractions like Shanghai, the Terracotta army, and pandas. Though this city does not have repeat-ability for us, it was still an enjoyable place to visit and should be on your list as well.
